She is the heir to the Dutch throne, but Princess Amalia has waivered her right to earn an income of €1.6 million per year.
The 17-year-old is the oldest daughter of King Willem-Alexander. She finished the Dutch equivalent of matric last week and has decided to take a gap year before studying towards a degree at university.
Because she is a royal, she is allowed to receive a salary of €1.6 million per year along with personal and household expenses.
The Princess made headlines this week when it was announced that she had a handwritten letter delivered to Prime Minister Mark Rutte saying she won't be accepting her salary until she was able to execute proper royal duties later in her life as Princess of Orange.
CBC reports that she said receiving money for not doing anything made her feel "uncomfortable".
"I find it uncomfortable as long as I can offer little in return and other students have it so much more difficult, especially in these uncertain corona times," the Princess wrote.
The Princess also committed to repaying her €300,000 a year income she was entitled to as long as she was still a student, and would not claim €1.3 million in expenses, reports The Guardian.
The Dutch royal family is known to be the most expensive of all the royal families in Europe.
